Finding an effective jig or fixture for a woodworking operation can be as elusive and time-consuming as designing a great piece of furniture, a sailboat, or a ukulele. It takes solid woodworking knowledge and some problem-solving skills, with a good dose of inspiration thrown in. Even a moderately complex setup can pose numerous choices:

  • What tool or machine is best for the operation?
  • Should the jig move the wood over the machine or guide the machine past the wood?
  • How does the workpiece need to be referenced and clamped?
  • Should the jig be adjustable?

Most of the woodworkers I’ve met delight in solving challenging jigging problems. But tackling these problems requires a basic understanding of jig function and design. This book will teach you how to make these time saving devices and help improve everything you build in your shop.
